Where to find Christmas lights in Parkes

It's begun!

All of a sudden it's that time of year when - on any given evening - you might turn into any quiet residential street and meet a traffic jam of family cars admiring Christmas lights.

The backseats are loaded with pyjama clad kids, their faces pressed to the window to see if they can spot Santa, Rudolph, a star or a manger in the spectacular.

We have only made a tiny start on checking them out this year - the days are flying by!

So please let us know where the lights are. If you've decorated your house, please send us a photo or we will be out and about with the camera again in coming days.

From every parent: thank you to those who put all the work and effort into these displays every year, you really are part of making Christmas magic!
